In your 10 April 2007 JewishGen query number 15, you asked about the Bydgoszcz archives and what information survived.
I have been to Bydgoszcz several times and have written about the holdings. The best place to see information would be in my chapter on Western Poland in the book listed for Jewish genealogical research around the world, as noted in the following website. Alternatively, you could search for such information by going through the list of my publications. You will find it at <http://www.GetCited.org/mbrx/PT/99/MBR/11078005>. The articles appeared in Avotaynu. However, you might also find valuable help in articles listed there that appeared elsewhere.
The archives in Bydgoszcz emerged from World War II without being bombed. However, the Nazis may have removed some files about Jews. Many workers there speak English and almost all know German. Access the archives website via www.polishroots.org and then go to the Polish National Archives website and follow the instructions. In some cases, you can use Sezam to find files in archives but it is not complete. The Mormons have filmed most BMD records available there. You can see them at the Mormon Library in Kensington on rental. They may have filmed other records as well. Also, check the PolishRoots website, which is non-profit and tax-exempt. Any books mentioned in any of these sources ought to be available at the Library of Congress and many other research libraries. The Library of Congress will only interlibrary loan if there is no other library in the USA holding the book.
If you know the name of the adult male ancestors in Posen Province in 1834/35, you might also look for them in my book, listed in the GetCited website provided above.
